Velum Break — Bench Manoeuvres

April 2019

Design and artwork for a CD in digipak case on Touched Music.

The brief called for something a bit rude, cheeky and not very serious mixed with line drawings inspired by Health and Safety posters. Richard (Velum Break) had recently discovered the joys of a pineapple and Portabello mushroom burger and, to him, this was a great metaphor for the music… a mixture of light and dark, different textures and unusual flavours combining in unexpected ways — something that shouldn't work together but does.

The Health and Safety inspired line drawings of the exploded burger and the suggestive mushroom stalk going into the pineapple ring on the cover combine with the bespoke typography, rendered in a palette of white, dark brown and fleshy pink.
